Stunning vibrant tulips

Stunning, huge, parroty tulips which are almost neon orange with streaks of yellow & darker orange. Absolutely gorgeous and were one of the stars of my pots of tulips in 2017.

This is really stunning. Big and blousy. Strong colours really brighten a shady corner. Like most parrot tulips it did get floppy, but still eonderful.

I have a confession - I ordered my bulbs through Bloms at Chelsea last year (2013)after I had seen them on their stand. Worked out to £1 a bulb and there were 10. It has to be THE best £10 ever spent. They've been in a pot for weeks (5 - 6), starting out yellow and then opening to these huge orange striped green blooms that have given me so much joy every time I look at them. Will definately get some more now I see Crocus have them.

Plan ahead with bulbs

One of the great things about gardening is being able to look into the future with enthusiasm, and part of that is planting now for next spring. A gardener knows, when handling papery brown bulbs, that these insignificant little things will produce early

Create colourful containers

If the budget’s tight or your plot is tiny, potting up a large container will make much more of an impact. It has to be rugged, either frost-proof terracotta, wood or stone, to withstand hard weather. Your compost has to be equally meaty and should conta

Tips for your tulips

The most useful garden tulips arrive in the second half of April or in May, after most of the daffodils have flowered. For this reason it’s a good idea not to mix the two because by the time your tulips flower, the daffodils will be past their best.
